2013 has been a watershed for Perth’s Abbe May. Her album “Kiss My Apocalypse” was released to critical acclaim, she signed with prestigious publisher Alberts, went viral with her cover of Ginuwine’s ‘Pony’ from triple j’s Like a Version and has rounded the year off with a nomination for Best Female at the upcoming ARIA Awards.
She celebrated the end of her national album launch tour in style with two AIR award nominations and the news that Entourage has used her track “Mammalian Locomotion” in the closing credits of an episode in their latest season.
After recent stints in New York and Europe, Abbe has announced a big final quarter schedule of touring including an extensive list of regional dates with Art vs Science, the national triple j Nick Cave ‘Straight to You’ theatre tour through November, special appearance club dates and iconic festivals such as Meredith, Pyramid Rock, Wave Rock Weekender and Mullum to name a few. Abbe May spent her late teens and early twenties in Australia’s sleaziest rock venues, busted up studios and unreliable tour vans in various solo and band incarnations.
With sly humour, Abbe has graduated from her critically acclaimed early explorations of rock and blues to become a guitar-slinging goddess with an atmospheric cocktail of sexy indie riff-rock, psychedelia and blues. Abbe’s new album DESIGN DESIRE was released in July 2011 to universal acclaim and also enjoyed feverish radio support for the singles ‘Mammalian Locomotion’, ‘Taurus Chorus’ and title track ‘Design Desire’.
